"Spacious and yet not light on lyrical or music girth, Darkroom twirl the traditional indie benevolence into a non-traditional scrapbook kind of progression. Delicate and fully capable of keeping their ambitious instrumentation in particular moods particularly pertaining to remembrance, A Curious Excavation is just that; a dedicated dig to the core of our ability to cope with those we lost and those we have yet to lose. It's a possibility, a chance at an unattainable perfection; a perfection that's yet to leave my mind since I first discovered it."

Today I was at my mailbox to pick up all the latest cds that labels so graciously send us. In the pile were cds from Dizmas, Derek Webb, Odd Project, and a cd from a band called "Darkroom". At first look I thought it was going to be some crappy unsigned band with a weird name. Second look, I realized they had some snazzy cd artwork and they wrote a personal handwritten note. So I was like "Oh what the heck, what harm can popping this cd in cause?". Well this cd is far from causing you any harm. It radiates with beauty and creativity. It's a well structured and well orchestrated collection of songs rich in texture. Their cd "A Curious Exacavation" just came out March 31st. This is a band that needs to be heard so please give them a chance today.

If Zach Braff was to compile another soundtrack in the future, Darkroom has the perfect qualities and readiness to be a top contender. This band has a great future ahead of them and can stand up to the best bands of the alternative scene. Composed, finished and dynamic, Darkroom's new album "A Curious Excavation" will definitely be put on this new fan's heavy rotation.

(Darkroom) play the kind of well-orchestrated music that sounds big and bold, where you want to tell the world "this is my band" and head to every show you can afford. I am very impressed by the songwriting, and combined with their music, Darkroom are a group that should rightfully be in the pop and rock spotlight.
